January 2014 marks the publication of the fifth volume of David Daube’s collected works. The title of vol. 5 is Roman Law, which holds much less interest for me as a student of Scripture. Unlike the volumes on Talmudic Law (1) and Ethics (4), this one does not appear to contain any articles that seem likely to include any exegesis of the Bible. Nonetheless, I will probably buy it, if only for the sake of completeness. I have always enjoyed Daube’s style and wit, and it is a pleasure to watch him solve puzzles even when there is no payoff for understanding the Bible. He is one of the great minds of the 20th century.
